SCAM!!! I thought I had an ok experience until I got my dress. I'm a bridesmaid and we had an appointment with the store to try on dresses. When we arrived the sales people weren't rude but not particularly helpful. They seemed annoyed we didn't know you had to order bridesmaid dresses 5 months in advance. Since we couldn't get all styles rush ordered they pointed to a small rack of choices. I was hoping to find a dress for $150-200, however at this point I was willing to pay a bit more for the rush. When I found a dress I wanted I got measured. At this point the sales person was friendly. I'm pregnant and we were trying to determine which size I should order. The wedding was 3 months away and I was 18 weeks along. The dress I tried was a size 10 and it was pretty snug, but the lady convinced me I'm actually about 3-4 sizes bigger because the dress didn't look right. I was horrified but figured I'm pregnant so whatever. She told me according to her expert opinion I should go with a size 24. Since my belly will be big. The bust on that size was HUGE, I'm a busty girl, but that was ridiculous. I decided to go with size 20, hoping it wouldn't be too tight. She thought it would be too snug. At the end, after I got charged a rush fee, a fatty tax (yes I'm serious) and the price of the dress, I payed close to $300. I got the dress a week ago and it is ENORMOUS! I'm practically swimming in it. My belly has grown a lot, my baby, according to my OBGYN, is pretty big but the dress is just falling off of me. Now they want to charge me another $200 to fix it? They have to, because it is so BIG. I feel like I've been duped into spending $500 on a dress that I'm never going to wear again! I'm not giving them more business. Now I have to find a tailor!

GREAT STORE. I have to say when I saw the reviews I hesitated to make an appointment. My sister bought her dress here a few years ago and I was afraid maybe the store had gone downhill. THEY WERE WONDERFUL! As a larger woman the sales

The gowns were adequately normal at best. The sales lady that day, Bobby or something, was one of the worst people i have ever met. she was flat out awful. she told me i was obese ( im a 6), she was rude and argumentative with my mother and friend, told me i was probably too poor to afford anything, kept telling me my choices were bad, wouldn't let me try anything on more than once, and much more. i can't believe anyone would buy anything from this lady. at this rate they will be out of business in a month. if you are looking for dresses, LEAVE THIS PLACE OFF YOUR LIST. unless you like feeling bad about yourself.

they did everything to make us feel unwanted. the saleslady, bobby or something, was a flat out awful person. she called me fat (im a 6), insinuated i was poor, was rude to my mother and friend, and flat out refused to accommodate any of my own personal requests. FOR MY OWN GOWN!! This place clearly doesn't care about their customers and i suggest that unless you want to leave with a bad self esteem, LEAVE THIS PLACE OFF YOUR LIST.

I was very unhappy with gowns by design. I made an appt and as soon as I walked in, the lady was very uninterested in me. Acted like we were wasting her time. Went over the designers and such but was very unfriendly. She did not acknowledge my mother or aunt and seemed completely annoyed that they wanted to see the dresses on me. The lady then told me that I was her only appt all day. So why she acted like we were wasting her time was really annoying. Pictures are not permitted and they won't tell you the style number. I found it online anyway. I found a dress that I really liked, but am going to another store to get it. I wouldn't want any of my money to go to that awful store.

I went looking for Wedding dresses this past weekend. The first place I went treated me with Red Carpet Service. The second place I went was Gowns By Design. We made an appointment ahead of time and we were approximately 10-15 minutes early. Immediately we got an attitude from the older lady at the counter. She did show us around the store and explain where each designer was. They offered zero help hooking the strapless bra (not an easy thing to do by yourself). I put on the first dress and the lady walked out to get my other family members. My cousin got out her camera and started taking pictures for reference later as to which one i really liked. The lady stormed and and yelled at her and said "no pictures allowed and that all dresses can be found online". I understand it's policy, but if you can find it online...why can't you take pictures?. Anyway, I tried on several dresses after that point and I found one I really liked, then all of a sudden the lady walks out and doesn't give a reason why. Finally a manager walked to help us out. The lady came back and with an attitude, claimed her daughter was on the phone and she just wanted to talk with her. They do not give out style number so that you can reference the dress online. I possibly would have bought a dress there, but the service was so horrible...I would NEVER go back!

Pros: Nice dresses

Cons: Poor service

.

The staff was really friendly and nice to us. All the dresses I tried on were really nice, and fit really well after some adjustments (I am an XS/ 0-2 in dresses and about 5'5, and most of the sizes there were average size 10 which was huge!). They always helped me to literally put stuff on and were willing to listen to me. I found my dresses for about $5500 which is way under what I was expecting to pay. I think people need to realize the difference between the $99 chain store synthesized material dresses and the real satin dresses. There is a HUGE difference! If I was planning to be married a few times, I'd probably buy a cheap dress $99 dress, but after all this is a one in a lifetime opportunity, so I had no limits for the budget on the dress cost.
The only thing I'd change is having smaller sizes available for trying on. All in all, I am so glad I went to this store, it made my experience so much easier and there were tons of great options for me (I couldn't decide on a dress!)! If you are serious about a nice dress, go here and they will be happy to help you.

My maid of honor and i went by gowns by design to just check out the selection with no appointment (Sat). We were greated by Bonnie who was very happy to assist us. She told us that there was a cancellation and took us to the bridal room. She sat down with us asked questions to get a feel for what I am looking for. She was very personalble and friendly, made us very comfortable and gave great advise. I am now stuck between 2 gowns. This is the TRUE bridal experience and Far from the large chain stores.

I went to Gowns by Design to just look at what they had to offer. When we came in with no appointment Bonnie told us we are lucky there was a cancellation and took us into the bridal room. She sat down with us asked about the date/ them and what I want in my dress. She walked us thru the shop and spent allot of time with us. She was very personable and made the experience fun. It was exactly what I always see the tv girls experience when they shop for the dress. Needless to say I found 2 dresses there and need to make up my mind. This is a true bridal experience.

I was in there looking for a prom dress, I'm 16 years old and in 11th grade, the youngest saleswoman wouldn't help me at first until my mom told her we needed help around the store. when i was trying gowns on she seemed very opinionated and in a hurry. She helped me tie the dress and if i moved at all while she was doing this she would yell at me and smack my arm!! i was amazed. after a while she looked at my boyfriend and asked how long we've been together and once i told her a year and a half she seemed appalled and rolled her eyes and asked if i thought i was young to be in a relationship. I bought the dress because it's beautiful and it fit perfectly, if you want a gorgeous gown go here, but they are rude!!!!

I purchased my gown at Gowns By Design. I saw a beautiful Maggie Sotterro gown in a magazine and when I looked for it online it said I could find it at Gowns By Design. I tried it on and fell in love with it, It was very beautiful! I went back with my mother, mother in law and sisters and everyone was impressed with the service we got, they made everyone feel at home they were helpful and helping me into the dress and making sure I had all the undergarments I needed and it was just an overall wondeful experience. I would recommend Gowns By Design to anyone. The prices were reasonable for designer dresses and the service was GREAT!

I was in a few days ago to look at bridesmaid dresses. I called the store and the woman I talked to told me I could come in without an appointment to look. We were greeted by a perfectly nice woman. I looked around at the dresses downstairs (there were none less than $200) and asked the nice woman what was in the upstairs room. She told me there were some prom dresses and discontinued bridesmaid dresses up there so we decided to go up. The rude woman came over and told me not to, "Prom dresses? For bridesmaids? That's just stupid." Then, while I was looking at the gowns downstairs again, my mom went to look at the wedding gowns. I already have one in mind that I want to buy so I wasn't looking to buy one from there. The rude woman went over to my mom and told her she didn't understand why my mom was over there, or what we were doing in the store. She told her that if she wanted to look at the gowns, she would need to make an appointment. We weren't being loud or in the way of anyone, but we weren't allowed to look, either. I have never met such a rude sales person. That woman lost their store my business forever.

I am from Northern Virginia where the gowns are very pricey and not that great of material. I came to Gowns by Design to first look at dresses and found one I loved. I then took time to think about it and look at other bridal shops in DC and Virginia. I could not find Pronovias anywhere except at Gowns By Design. They have an excellent selection here. I got basically everything I needed: my hair piece, jewelry, shoes, bra, and custom made veil to match my pronovias gown. At times the sales women are opinionated but dont let that turn you away. Stick with what you want and tell them that. I am a very picky girl, and if I could find something here so could you! Happy Shopping

This was the second bridal salon that I visited on my hunt for the THE dress, and I found it. My mom, three aunts and I made an appointment in the evening and it was wonderful because we had a lot of privacy and we practically had the store to ourselves. The associate that helped us was "Debbie" and she was wonderful. She was kind, understanding and VERY knowledgable. We were given our own private room and Debbie allowed us to choose the dresses that we liked. She then helped us to narrow down what style was best for me, based on my own taste and body type. The selection was wonderful and the gowns are truly works of art. The shop is prestine and very charming. I would recommend this shop to anyone searching for a bridal gown or any other special occassion gown. it was a wonderful experience!

Pros: Selection, Great Service, Great Lighting, Privacy, Attention to Detail

Cons: They carry some dresses that cost more than $2,500, so some of them may not fit the budget for some people.

I came in twice to look for an veil, the first time to try them on and the second time to make a final decision. The second time I came in, the saleswoman actually argued with me about what veil she thought I said I liked the first time. I wasn't about to let her convince me to buy a veil I didn't like, and when I stood my ground and did not agree with her, she rolled her eyes at me and walked out of the room in a huff! I have never had to argue with a salesperson before about what I wanted to buy. Ridiculous. Don't come to this store if you don't want to have to argue with salespeople about what you like and what they think you should like.

Gowns by Design was the second store I went to when looking for my dress. Although I made an appointment, the woman seemed too busy to help and basically sat at her desk until I told her I NEEDED her help to get dresses off the rack. She was not very helpful in suggesting dresses and made rude comments to both my mother and myself. I'm not sure if she was just having a bad day or if because I am younger (24) that she did not take me seriously, but Gowns by Design is NOT a place I would suggest anyone shop at.

I love love love this place! The staff is extremely professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. All tailoring is done on site by one of the owners and she is amazing with altering your gown to look just perfect. They have a lot of selection and are happy to special order gowns as well. I loved them for wedding gowns but I do have to admit the bridesmaid dresses were pricier than I wanted to pay. We did go elsewhere for those. Also, they are very busy (as are all bridal salons) so it's definitely advisable to make an appointment. A lot of girls who didn't know any better simply walked in and expected a lot of attention, but they didn't realize that the staff was tied up with customers who had previously scheduled appointments. If you just want to look it's absolutely fine to just walk in, if they aren't busy they're more than willing to help you but otherwise you'll need to schedule an appointment where you'll get all the attention you could ask for!

I love love love this place! The staff is extremely professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. All tailoring is done on site by one of the owners and she is amazing with altering your gown to look just perfect. They have a lot of selection and are happy to special order gowns as well. I loved them for wedding gowns but I do have to admit the bridesmaid dresses were pricier than I wanted to pay. We did go elsewhere for those.

I just purchased my wedding gown from them 2 weeks ago. You should make an appointment, just like any bridal shop, but they are busy on Sat. I had individualized attention and you can tell that they truly love what they do. All the girls in the shop were helping me pick the perfect dress even though they were busy also. The prices range from very affordable to very pricey; they have something for everyone, plus they have gowns off the rack you can buy at amazing prices. I cancelled all the appointments I had at other places because I fell in love with the 5th dress I tried on. They price them right and don't upcharge relying on someone to be a good negotiator, so I thought they were very honest and helpful. I will forever suggest Gowns by Design to everyone I know.

This bridal shop is the most helpful and friendly shop we
visited. The dresses are not just like all the rest, so are not
the ususal $99 dresses. They are all knowledgeable about fabric as well as alterations. We would and have recommended this shop to friends. We had attendants from 3 states and all were treated well with several appointments being necessary. Give this one a try, the atmosphere is beautiful also.

PROS: Know fabric and aterations
CONS: Small showroom

I am a young (22) bride, I went here.. and basically wasn't offered much help at all. I guess they thought I was just a joke. They hardly said 2 words to me. I just got married, so I was serious about looking for a dress. I didn't see any moderate priced dresses. If your young or on a budget, I wouldn't recommend!

Gowns by Design is an extremely pricey bridal store. The gowns are pretty and their shop is nice, but I think their prices are out of line. The shop is an old house that has been converted. They have a lot of gowns, but they are pretty packed into the store. The dressing rooms are very large and nice. Most gowns seem to be around $2,000. They also have bridal accessories and bridesmaids gowns. I thought the employees were pretty cold and none too friendly.
